Team news | Spurs vs Nottingham Forest | Richarlison ruled out

Fri 05 April 2024, 13:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Richarlison has been ruled out of Sunday's Premier League encounter with Nottingham Forest.

The Brazil international, who recently recovered from a knee injury that kept him out of games against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa in February, felt a slight niggle in his knee after a late substitute appearance in our 1-1 draw at West Ham United on Tuesday night and will be rested for this weekend as a precaution says Ange Postecoglou.

Despite this, our number nine, who has 10 goals and three assists in his 25 league appearances this season, is not expected to be out for long and is instead being given the chance to fully recover ahead of our following trip to Newcastle United on Saturday 13 April.

Speaking in his SPURSPLAY pre-match interview ahead of Forest, Ange said: "The only one from the other night is Richy.

"He's had a little bit of a niggle with his knee so we'll give him this weekend off to get him totally over it so he's ready for Newcastle next week. Everyone else got through the game well, we're ready to go."

Manor Solomon (knee), Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) and Fraser Forster (foot) remain our long-term absentees.
